Thanks, Vince. Great photos and description as always. A little bit more about this one.
The knife is designed for KOI Combat Fighting, a full contact modern karate-style involving a bladed weapon. The designer of this knife happens to be the Russian Champion for this fighting style. We thought why not dress it up as well? This particular model is the Medium size and will also be available in a neck knife size and a larger (5.5") blade size. The steel is 440C that we heat treated in-house to 58 HRC.
